EMI Goes Social

Emergency Management Institute Goes Social

FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute (EMI) launched its new social media accounts this week to better share information on training opportunities and course offerings and in a timely manner. The accounts provide platforms for trusted networking opportunities that the emergency management community could use both on and off campus. Students and emergency management professionals also will be able to engage in a dialogue to share information related to the training they receive through EMI.
